VIDEO: Ryan Strome's Ridiculous Shootout Goal At Islanders Rookie Camp

Ryan Strome was the No. 5 overall pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, and now he's a member of the New York Islanders. At the team's development camp at the Nassau Coliseum over the weekend, Strome gave the crowd on hand something they won't soon forget.

That's just.... absurd.

I've seen a few people watch this video and say that the moves are just for show and that they don't do anything that actually contributes to scoring the goal -- basically, that it's just unnecessary dazzle, like when the goalie shows off his swagger by whipping his glove back after making a save. 

But look how silly Strome makes the goalie look here. It's all related to those moves. He confuses the goalie into poking after the puck, then spins and causes the poor guy to fall on his behind. By that point, lifting the puck over him and into the back of the net, whether with the backhand or not, is easy as cake.

Just an awesome shootout move (and it's nice to talk about hockey a bit in July, isn't it?).
